Today...


This Springtime weather has us outside and enjoying the sun!
Our little cousin was able to visit over Spring Break and what a fun time the kids had together. 
Cousin relationships are so special.
Almost like a brother or sister, yet a completely unique bond.


Lily had fun showing her cousin how to groom and care for her steers.
She caught right on!


Our neighbor's goats....lazing in the sun :)

Chippy was groomed and beautified for hours. He was in heaven.
 Then I decided to use his lawn mowing capabilities in the chicken run. It is quite large and my chicks are not keeping the grass down.
I think I need to clip their wings to keep them contained.

Have you planted your garden yet?
My spinach, kale, and lettuces are coming up...as well as peas. 
The rest of the garden {shown here} is ready for seeds!

Hiking is such a fun part of the Spring for us.
The girls and I decided to hike to the ridge of a very steep hill to see these iron horses.
How they got them up there, I will never know!

 And today....we are back outside. Planting potatoes, working steers, and maybe even taking a dip in the creek.
Cleaning a bit indoors, creating fresh spaces from willy nilly messes made all winter.
Oh this Spring time is pure joy!

Hope your Spring day is a lovely one!

It looks like a fun spring day on your farm!
No garden planting here until May. I might try to put some lettuce seeds in the ground, but it's still too cold here for germinating seeds.
Happy Spring!
